Family Law: Due to severe funding shortages, our Milwaukee office does not offer in-person intake for family law problems. We can only take family law cases when they are referred from the Sojourner Truth Family Peace Center. (http://www.familypeacecenter.org/) Others may visit the Milwaukee Justice Center at the Milwaukee County Courthouse or visit their website (https://www.milwaukeejusticecenter.org/) for help with family law matters.
Housing Problems: If you have a Milwaukee County eviction, visit our Eviction Defense Project. Due to severe funding shortages, we do not offer walk-in intake for other housing law problems.
